Sage Dream Design
(& Songs of the Spirit Arts)
This majestic tree makes for a truly magical
centerpiece to your seasonal table.  It is
bright, colorful, earthy and ethereal, all at the
same time.  The felted earth is firm and sturdy,
with an array of vines, flowers, and mushrooms
and is an inviting place for outdoor treasures
from the garden.  The leaf canopy is soft and
delicate, giving the piece a fairy tale look and feel.

The permanent leaf canopy is gently wound fleece
and would NOT be suitable for handling by children.
I suggest directing the attentions of little ones to the
earthy ground and teaching them to focus their play
there.

This tree can serve as a year round base for your nature table and a great repository for all of
those acorns, stones, shells and dried flowers that make their way in from the garden.
A wonderful way to cultivate awareness of the seasons for children.  

"Regular" - $110         (9-10" tall, mat is 9-10" diameter)

***I have a seasonal decoration pack available for this tree at an
additional charge of $7.  The pack includes some rust/brown wool to
layer over the green Frost arrives in winter.  These additional colors can
be added in the appropriate season and then removed for the next
season, thus bringing the change of seasons more fully into your child’s
consciousness.

What are playscapes?
Lush, soft, colorful, wool playlands to nourish the imagination!

Imaginative dwellings for fairy folk, gnomes, animals, and a
world of magical inhabitants!

A "jumping off" point, a framework, to kick start the creation
of many fantastical stories.  I believe each child’s world would
be a wonder to see!

See "Extras" (playscape accessories) at the bottom of the
page.
"Fantasy Playscapes
(Imagination Candy
)"
All playscapes are truly one-of-a-kind!

Though I produce similar designs with similar elements, due to
the nature of various wools and the simple act of creating with
your hands, no two playscapes will ever be identical.  I try to
capture the look and feel of each design when making your order
but making exact copies is not possible. All playscapes  are
"made-to-order", which means I begin construction at the time
of your order/payment. This allows me to customize colors and
features, at No Extra Charge!
"Mushroom Fantasy Look-Out"        

A truly fun-gal experience!  This giant mushroom features an
outcropping of stem at it's base that a crafty gnome has
smartly large enough for her family to inhabit.  Features two
perches for which to play or take a quick cat nap.

The surrounding area includes a long and lazy river that
flows from the front of the land to the back and again to the
front - complete with stones, foliage,  and an array of
mushrooms that colors their world.

Notice the stone steps placed between the two rooms that
lead the family up to their rooftop patio.

Your choice of either "Autumn Gold" or "Cranberry Red"
for the large mushroom top.

"Treehouse Party Pavilion"

This is a tree-house in the literal sense.
At the base of this stately tree, there is a lovely
little cottage home with curly green wool lining it's
entrance - this home is complete with a rooftop
patio and is ideal for parties or gatherings with
friends!

Features a stepping stone walkway and steps that
lead up to the rooftop patio. Flowery vines grow
up the side of the tree and two little ducks swim
nearby on the pond.

The permanent leaves on the tree feature a
removable bird’s nest with tiny little bluebird eggs
in it.  And the branches at the top of the tree are
made of  bendable wire (nicely covered in wool, of
course) allowing the woolen “leaves” of the tree to
be arranged according to your child’s whims.  To
create the airy, light look of the tree leaves the
wool has only been lightly felted.  Thus, this set is
more appropriate for an older child who can play
very gently in the treetop.
